We are committed to telling Caribbean stories. The Caribbean is home to some of the sweetest treasures in the world. We’re made up of hundreds of small islands, chock-full of exotic animals, food, sites, folklore, culture, and festivals. Each island is a different adventure in itself, with lots to see, do, and learn. Channeling the spirit of Caribbean childhood, we design local characters and edutainment content for babies and children. Our mission with our debut collection, “Island Babies”, is to engage and encourage children to appreciate the Caribbean’s diverse environment, festivals, culture, sounds and tastes.

leatherback turtle

The Caribbean supports one of the largest leatherback nesting populations worldwide with an estimated 6,000 visiting its shores annually. Leatherbacks, like all sea turtles, start out as eggs buried in sandy nests. The hatchlings face many predators as they scamper seaward. It is estimated that only one in a thousand leatherback turtles survive to adulthood.

snowcone

A Snow Cone is a refreshing treat made of ice shavings smothered in sweet fruit syrup. Vendors in the Caribbean operate from trolleys using a shaving machine to grind down large blocks of ice. The colourful syrup is made from tropical fruits such as guava, tamarind and pineapple. A topping of condensed milk is sometimes added for extra sweetness. Snow cones are perfect on a sunny day, and are a favourite cool down during the heat of Kiddies Carnival.

blue crab

This hard-shelled crustacean dwells in swamps around the Caribbean. Blue crabs bear 8 regular legs and 2 claws or gundys (local name). Crabs typically walk sideways but in the Caribbean they also race sideways. A jockey ties a string to the crab’s gundy and uses a pole to coax it towards the finish line. Blue crabs are also a component of the popular “Crab and Dumpling”, a dish of crab stewed with curry and coconut milk.

coconut

The coconut is a versatile fruit enjoyed in the Caribbean. A vendor staple, the top is chopped off, and the “water” inside enjoyed straight from the shell. Splitting it, you can use piece of the shell to scoop the sweet gelatin-like jelly inside. The hardened jelly of older nuts is used to make sweet treats, such as ice cream and sugar cake, or is pureed to create coconut milk – a staple peas, curries and calalloo. Even the last bit, the husk and the shell, can be used in agriculture, as potting material.
